I live in Virginia, and in my household we’ve had an inordinate number of conversations about loud cars lately. It seems we’re hearing them a lot.
Which raises some questions. We’ve lived here ten years, so why does it seem new? And how do people drive around with their engines un-muffled, obnoxiously announcing their illegal equipment to everyone in earshot, without getting pulled over by the first bored cop who comes within two blocks of them?
